Challenge: A Shakespearean Summer

I've decided to take on another challenge (an official one this time - not just personal like my goal to read 100 books this summer - and a long term one, unlike the 48 Hour Book Challenge) and I'm really excited about it (the English lit major that I am). Sponsored by Liv's Book Reviews and Lisa Mantchev, it's called A Shakespearean Summer. You can get full details here but the challenge is to read three Shakespeare plays and blog about them by August 31. Having read all of his popular ones by now, I'm trying to decide whether I'd like to reread some or go for plays I haven't read yet. Any suggestions?
I'm also hoping to include in my posts a movie aspect since I took a course that was all about comparing the original plays to modern visual adaptations of Shakespeare, and I would love to bring in some of that while I blog (though I admit I don't know how I plan on doing that yet). Anyway, I encourage you all to join in as well. If you complete the challenge, you'll be entered for some incredible prizes from Lisa Mantchev, plus reading Shakespeare is ALWAYS a good thing.
P.S. I know I keep saying this, but I promise I'll have my review of Breathing up soon (hopefully tomorrow, but definitely by this weekend).
